After obsessing over the perfect Thanksgiving menu, I hit send on the email — with the very important grocery list — to my father, only to realize I had forgotten one crucial item: the appetizer! I didn't want to serve something heavy or difficult to make, and I didn't have time to browse the Internet in search of inspiring hors d'oeuvres ideas.
Thus, I decided to make baked goat cheese. Quite possibly the world's simplest dish, baked goat cheese is just that, cheese that's cooked in an oven-safe dish. I served it with crostini, but feel free to offer your favorite cracker instead. To get the recipe (it's kind of silly calling it a recipe; it's that easy!), keep reading.
